WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IS YOUR GREATEST
ACHIEVEMENT IN YOUR LIFETIME?
to that involvement on the part of the students and on the
part of adults as well.
Probably the greatest achievement if my lifetime is work-
ing with young people both through college and through
Church. To see the progress of these young people and
what they can do when they commit themselves to a goal
and the satisfaction that comes when we see them achieving
those goals, even though this achievement may be spread
over a period of years.
BEING A MINISTER, ARE YOU IN FAVOR OF ALL
THE CHANGES GOING ON IN YOUR CHURCH AND
Yes, quite so, the church has been sort of a stagnant insti-
tuition for a number of years. I think, on the ecumenical
side, all churches and all faiths have given inspiration to
each other. We see the need of doing things together with a
IF YOU COULD CHOOSE ANY OTHER PROFESSION
BESIDES WHAT YOU ARE NOW, WHAT PROFESSION
WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND WHY?
I think that if I were choosing another profession, though
I am pretty well satisfied, it might be a guidance officer in a
high school. I seem to see the need of this very much. As
students come to see a Dean of Students, or if they come to
ask about financial aid, it doesn't seem like they are always
getting the information that they should have had say two
or three years before or at least a year before they came to
WHAT RELIGIOUS FIGURE, PAST OR PRESENT,
HAS IMPRESSED YOU THE MOST?
IF YOU COULD LIVE IN ANY PERIOD OF TIME,
EITHER PAST OR FUTURE, WHAT PERIOD OF TIME
WOULD YOU PICK AND WHY?
Oh, right now is the most thrilling time to be alive and to
be doing something.
WE KNOW THAT YOU ARE A PROFESSOR, AD-
MINISTRATOR AND A MINISTER, WHICH PROFES-
SION HAS GIVEN YOU THE MOST SATISFACTION?
I think what I am doing right now, a combination of two
things, is most satisfying. It is working with students on the
college level and also working with young people at the
church level. Many college students are involved in religion
in some way or another and the church has got to come up
I think outside of biblical figures, the man most inspiring
to me is Albert Schwitzer. He has made a tremendous con-
tribution by bringing medicine, philosophy and religion al-
together and inserting human needs with his tremendous
DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD REFORM OUR EDU-
CATIONAL SYSTEM STARTING FROM THE GRADE
SCHOOL ALL THE WAY UP TO THE COLLEGE LEVEL?
Yes, but I think probably like everyone else that I don't
know just where reform shall begin. Talking with three
other educators in my family, there is certainly need for re-
formation. Many things will have to be tried before any one
approach or approaches will be found that will really be
meaningful. It seems to be a period of experimentation in
College Looks Good
DO YOU THINK THAT THE CAMPUS TURMOIL IS
OVER OR JUST BEGINNING?
I think if we use the word turmoil, it isn't over. But
neither is it beginning. I think the strong issues have been
brought out. We are sort of settling back to a level as to
how they are going to be worked out in a much saner atmo-
sphere and environment in which we do it.
DO YOU THINK THAT THE STUDENTS SHOULD
HAVE A GREATER SAY IN COLLEGE POLICY UKE
Students may well make appraisals of class procedures
and professors which they have. That will some how guide
those who have direct responsibility of hiring professors and
WHAT ONE EVENT IN YOUR LIFETIME STANDS
OUT MOST PROMINENTLY?
I suppose the most thrilling event was, after years of
studying in college and in the seminary, was ordination into
the Christian ministry which took time, which took commit-
ment and also a personal decision. And when those deci-
sions were made, there was a sense of satisfaction which
one only experiences once in a lifetime.
HOW WOULD YOU SUM UP YOUR YEARS AT
They have been growing years, all eight of them. When
you look back to what Curry was and what it is now, I don't
think that many faculty or students appreciate the struggle
we went through to get to our present position. It is really
thrilling to be a part of those eight years.
WHAT FUTURE DO YOU SEE FOR CURRY
With what we have achieved, the future looks good. I
think we got an inkling, through admission, of the students
interested. The fact of accreditation also helps us to attract
attention from a larger geographical area. The future looks
best now, at least during my stay at Curry College.

W. Conn., 55-7,

sive victory in its football his-
tory yesterday, crushing West-

with quarterback Mike Carab-

covered 31, 71, 35 and 74 yards.
John Keough, a freshman from

on a 32-yard run.

The Colonels opened their 1970 season against Maine Maritime
on ohe Colonels home field. The team was paced by Mike
Carrabba , who ran for one touchdown and threw for two while the
defence held Maine Maritime immoble all afternoon. The final
score was 34-0 Colonels.
WESTERN CONNECTICUT STATE
With one win under their belt the Curry Gridsters traveled to
Danbury Conn., to play Western Connecticut State. The Colonels
went through the game like there was no tomorrow scoring 12
points in the first quarter, and 15 points in the fourth quarter.
Western Connecticut scored their only point in the third period on
a blocked punt. They were successful with the extra point and the
final score was Curry 55, Western Connecticut 7.
Curry's first loss of the season came against Montelair state.
The loss was one that could not have been prevented. The
Montelair team was just stronger than the Colonels. Coach
McKeown said "We're not discouraged about the loss, they came
into the game with a great reputation and they showed us why.
They took advantage of the few mistakes we made and that's one
of the things that makes them great." The final score was
Montelair 35, Curry 0.
, This game was one that should never have been lost, but was.
The Colonels put the first two touchdowns on the board and then,
because of some mistakes, they let Trenton score. The score at
the end of the first half was Curry 13 Trenton 14. This was the
first time that the Colonels were trailing in the game. The third
quarter saw the same action as the first with the Curry Gridsters
scored a n eight point play with the score 21-14 Curry. In the fourth
quarter disaster struck as the Trenton team, after tying the score
in the end of the third quarter, scored again, making the final
score Trenton 28, Curry 21.
Parents Weekend saw the Curry Gridsters take an impressive
win in front of the Parents of the Curry students and also saw
them take the New England Small College Conference. The
Championship came from beating all of the teams in our
Conference. The 18-0 win was truly deserved by the team.
The Curry football team after having won the New England
Small College Championship traveled to face Plattsburg state in
upstate New York. The Plattsburg team was composed of mainly
upperclassmen while ours was mainly freshmen. The final score
was 6-0 which showed that the Colonels defense was equal to their
After having tied Plattsburg the Curry Gridsters traveled on
their last road game of the year to play Nichols College on their
home field. Te Gridsters needed this win to give them a better
than 500 season. Late in the third period the score was tied at 7-7
and with the desire to score the Colonels scored, made the score
13-7, and finished the game with the bestrecord that the team has
The 1970 homecoming game for Curry was held against
Brockport State. Thegamewas a tough one for our team, playing
before our fans and me returning Alumni. Thegame resulted in a
loss for theHome Gridsters by a score of 24-0.
JERSEY CITY STATE
The final game of the 1970 football season was played against
perhaps the best team that we faced all season. The game against
Jersey City State resulted in a loss with the final score 6-0. The
Colonels played their best game of the year. Had a call by the
Refs. thatseemed like none of the Refs. knew what happened had
not been called against the Colonels we would have scored a
touchdown, may have made the extra point and had a good
chance to win the game.

All College Forum
We, the members of the Honor's House of Curry College, in order to achieve a closer rapport be-
tween all individuals at Curry College, propose that a Student, Faculty, Administration Forum be es-
tablished. Its purpose will be to establish a better understanding of the controversial problems facing
this college. We feel that there are many questions being left unanswered and problems unsolved. Our
sincerest wish is that all will share in our concern, in order that today's dreams at Curry become to-
morrow's reality. This, we feel, can only be accomplished by opening more channels of communica-
tion. Hopefully, this Forum will help us to reach that goal.

"Freedom — When?"
"It is an honor to be born me!", so
said Mr. James Farmer, former undersec-
retary for H.E.W., as he spoke in the
little theatre Wednesday night. He added
that if all people especially Blacks, took
this type of attitude, many of the coun-
try's problems could be solved.
He went on to emphasize that this na-
tion has never been the "melting pot"
envisioned by our forefathers. There has
always been segregation, whether it be
by race, color or religion, in this country.
This segregation has become one of the
major factors which have caused changes
in the system. Historically, many of
these changes have had to be obtained in
Mr. Farmer labeled his theory of inte-
gration, "cultural pluralism." He believes
that we should be fully integrated cultur-
ally, specifically in respects to our race
problem. If this integration occurs, then
we will have halted much of the friction
that has led to violent and unorthodox
He would like to see a Vietnam with-
drawal this summer.
He said that Blacks should vote as a
power bloc so that they can best make
use of the politics of a campaign. Blacks
should not pledge their allegiance to any
one party. Instead, they should be voting
for the candidates that will best serve
their interests. He recommended ticket
splitting to accomplish this goal.
Life has greatly improved for the
Blacks in this country over the past dec-
ade. Unfortunately, this improvement
has not kept pace with other improve-
ments in the economic scene. He noted
that, in effect, the majority of this coun-
try's Black citizens are in worse shape
now than they were ten years ago.
At the press conference previous to his
lecture, Mr. Farmer answered questions
from reporters. The following are some
excerpts from this press conference.
The Nixon administration must create
more jobs, especially with summer vaca-
tions rapidly approaching.
The Calley decision and its aftermath
have strains of racism. A Black man in
the same situation would not have
evoked such sentiment from the Ameri-
can public nor such presidential action.
He added that President Nixon should
not have intervened in this matter. Cal-
ley did violate the Geneva Agreement.
The proposed Black presidential can-
didate would assure victory for Nixon.
On Spiro, "He's a better golf player
than I thought he was." He deserves to
be muzzled. This one man has caused
more polarization in this country than
any other force. Most of what he says,
he is saying for the president.
Leaving H.E.VV. was a personal choice.
He feels that he is more effective outside
of the government.
Freedom will be reached when all pre-
judices are removed.
Old line politics no longer work.
Southern strategy is dead.
The 18-21 year old, newly enfran-
chised, voters will be an important force,

MILTON — Curry College's var-
sity basketball team may not have
set the world afire this season, but
the school's intramural quintets
jumped into what may be interna-
tional prominence after completing
73 consecutive hours of basketball
play, starting at noon last Friday.
At 1 p.m. yesterday, a pair of
12-man squads saw the final hoop
flop through the strings to set up
a score of 4796 points for Theta
Epsilon Chi fraternity against Alpha
Gamma Beta's 4783. There were no
physical casualties other than weari-
The 73-hour marathon surpassed
by 60 minutes the endurance bas-
ketball contest between two fra-
ternities at Elizabeth, England, in
1968, which was the major point of
the extended recording. The two-
team total point scoring record of
Elizabeth, Eng., of 3181 against
3056 went by the boards.
Behind it all, however, was a
most charitable gesture, the raising
of $311 from admission fees of 25
cents for Curry College students,
for the Martin Luther King Jr.
Scholarship Fund benefit.
The contest and charity theme
was the brainchild of AGB's Mike
Gagliardi, one of the 12 iron men,
with assists for cooperation in pro-
motion going to referee Larry Cos-
tello who went the entire distance,
with and without a whistle.
Also aiding were Patricia "Patty"
Chane, statistician; trainers Bill
Green, Jeff Korn and Don Mac-
Meekin, and Tom Dippert, WBVC,
the school's radio station.
Leading scorers were Dave De-
Rocchi with 784; Dennis Flavin,
656, a great rebounder for the win-
ners; John Lawton, 684, and Gene
One team upon an occasion led
by as much as 250 points.
There is a new intramural
sport at Curry. The new
sport is handball. This is
the first time the sport has
been offered at Curry, so
you could call it an experi-
The originator of the sport,
Coach 'Riordan wants to give
Curry students a variety in
the sports in which they can
participate. One problem is
that handball is relatively
unknown, and the students
either don't know what the
game is all about or they are
afraid to learn more about it.
The tournament was held
on February 16 and 17, in
the gym. There was a single
meaning if you lose once you
are out. Paul Wujack de-
feated Barney Nugent 20-17
for the singles champion-
ship. The double winners
were Al Reid and Lloyd
Mapp, who defeated Nat
Reidel and Mitch Hackett,
by a score of 20-4.
"The Year of
According to all of the PR men, 1970 was the "Year of the
Quarterback." Yet after the first three selections in the Pro Foot-
ball Draft, another Quarterback was not selected until the third
round. The three Quarterbacks selected in the first round all
have excellent credentials. Jim Plunkett, Archie Manning, and
Dan Pastorini all were rated by the professional scouts as Quar-
terbacks who will be able to step in and command a professional
Football Offense. Other Quarterbacks lacked in most cases the
knowledge, the size, or were not pocket passers.
People are not rushing to the Boston Patriots ticket office to
buy season tickets (ED. NOTE: Quoted from the Boston Globe
Feb. 2, 1971; "Season ticket Sales Pass 31,000 Mark.") These fans
are sure that the drafting of Jim Plunkett will put the Patriots
into the Super Bowl. Not even Joe Namath brought the Jets into
a World's Championship himself. A football team must have a
top notch organization both on and off the field. Players must be
willing to play for the team and not themselves. Ron Sellers, Jim
Nance, and Carl Garrett must be traded to make way for players,
good players, who will be concerned with the final score not in-
The Patriots this year must take on the Jets, Dolphins and Colts
twice and the Forty-Niners, Cowboys, and Browns once. If the
Patriots hope to better their 2-12 record of this year, changes
must be made immediately or next January the Patriots will
again be talking about making changes.
Track Club Seeks Members
On April 3 in Washington D.C. the
new Curry College Track Club partici-
pated in a meet against 33 of the top teams
in the country. Among the colleges partici-
pating were Navy, Morgan State, and the
Baltimore Olympic club. Steve Viola, Ted
Kelly, Keith Kincannon and Reggie Green
were the only men from Curry that par-
ticipated in the meet.
Since the club's return from Washing-
ton, there has been a great deal of inter-
est from Curry students about the club. If
you have had some previous experience in
track and would like to join this club,
please contact Steve Viola, (box 463) by
Monday April 12.
The next scheduled meet is set for Sat-
urday April 24, against Brandeis Univer-
sity. Other meets will be scheduled de-
pending on the participants.

In division I, OEX, (I) the

division II the three teams
were the Busters, the only

and the Jaspers.
OEX I and the Busters were

Debate Team Places 5th In
Curry College's fledgling debate team placed fifth in the overall team standings at
the International Debate Tournament, sponsored by McGill University in Mon-
Seventy-eight teams from 39 colleges from throughout the United States and
Canada participated in the competition. Among the colleges represented were
Princeton, Wesleyan, Amherst, Emerson, Northeastern, the University of New
Hampshire, the University of Buffalo, and the University of Toronto.
The prepared topic for the Tournament was "Resolve That Heretics are The
Only Bitter Remedy Against the Entrophy of Human Thought."
Curry's debating program began last year, but this is the first year the College
has formally fielded a debating team. Coached by Prof. Haig DerMarderosian, the
Curry team in Montreal consisted of Conrad Gonthier, David Kimball, Thomas
Martin, and Robert Uvello. Gary Zucker, also a student at Curry, served as one of
the judges in the McGill Tournament.
On March 12, the Curry team will compete against the Norfolk Prison team,
and in April, it will participate in the Annual New England Forensic Conference at
the University of Maine. Last year, Curry debaters tied for first place with Emer-
son in the "extra events" phase of this Conference. It was the first time the Col-
lege had ever entered debating competition.
Depth and consistency was to be the key
to the 1971 varsity tennis success. Under
the watchful eye of Coach Riordan, the
team smashed their way to a 10-0 mark, an
achievement not matched since 1967.
Throughout the season, no more than 3
points were given up to an opponent. Ken
Camerata and Neil Pollack were undefeated
in singles play, while Bill Doolittle and Neil
Pollack posted a perfect record in doubles.

This year's commencement cer-

May 30 at 11 a.m. mark a new era
in the history of Curry College.
This is the first year that seniors
will be graduating from this col-
lege as an accredited institution.
Over 140 academic degrees will
be awarded, as well as 17 cer-
tificates to graduates of Curry's
unique Learning Disabilities pro-
gram. Another first will see the
college granting honorary doctor-
ate degrees in more varied fields
than in past years.
As has been the custom in past
years, the ceremony will be held
on the Academic Quadrangle
under a huge tent. Each senior has
been given ten engraved invita-
tions, but anyone who wishes,

the customary oration. The class
feels that they want to have a per-
son speak who is representative of
the class, without making aca-
demic achievement the prime
Also new this year will be a
hooding ceremony which will
occur at the podium. The seniors
will receive their academic hoods
as their symbol of academic
achievement. The hooding chores
will be handled by Dean of Men,
Robert Capalbo, and Senior Class
President Donald Mitchell.
New Era Award
The attainment of accreditation
has led the class to yet another
break from tradition. After many
hours of serious debate and soul
searching, the class decided that
they will not be giving the college
a class gift. Instead, in comme-
moration of accreditation, the
class will present the "New Era
Award," an award which will be
presented at every commencement
from this year forward.
New C.A.S. Award
The Communications Arts and
Sciences Award joins the English,
History, and Student Achievement
in the Wall Street Journal awards
which are always presented.
Nineteen seventy-one marks the 92nd year of the existence
of Curry College. More importantly, it marks the beginning
of a new era. This new era indicates a new phase of educa-
tion, a new spirit of life for an old college. Curry has dis-
carded its educational treadmill and has found a new direc-
tion. Yet 1971 must not also mark the end of her develop-
ment and thus end the new era that it began.
It would be very easy for this college to sit back on its new
achievements and coast as it did for so many years. Rationali-
zation of this would be equally as easy, after 92 years of
work a rest is certainly in order. Yet it is the implicit respon-
sibility of every person gathered here to see that Curry is
never allowed to stall. Educational stagnation smothers every-
one that it comes in contact with.
The strengths that Curry has built and drawn upon are
many. Her faculty has increased in quality as well as size.
Her campus has more than doubled and new buildings have
gone from blueprint to construction. These things are com-
mendable, but there are many things at Curry College that
are not commendable, things that must be changed if her
long journey is to be made worthwhile.
To this day Curry has neglected to draw upon her greatest
assest, the asset that can insure her unending success or rele-
gate her to eternal mediocrity. The asset to which I refer sits
here today and every graduation day — it is, of course, Cur-
ry's student body. The potential strength of this asset goes far
beyond new buildings or a beautiful campus with freshly
When President Hafer can stand up and say "Look at what
Curry students and aJumni have done", instead of "See how
nice our grass is", at that point, and only that point will
Curry College ever be able to take her place as a fully actual-
The student body is the great resource that administrative
policies have failed to tap because they did not believe that
there was anything worth listening to. But we are here and
must not and cannot be evaded any longer.
At present the students are allowed to elect members to all
faculty committees. This is good but not good enough for
students have distinct minority status on these committees.
This is tokenism; not equality.
There should be students on the President's Staff and the
Board of Trustees. These two bodies control nearly every
aspect of life at this school. They make decisions concerning
enrollment, tuition, space usage, hiring, firing, and the list
goes on endlessly. In every case the student is left playing
administrative "Follow the Leader".
To the President's Staff, student representation would sup-
ply much needed first hand knowledge, but more important-
ly, fresh and viable ideas to a group that otherwise might
become tempered by bureaucracy.
The power of the Board of Trustees is unquestionable and
undeniable, but not sacred. It seems paradoxical that of all
the decision making committees, this is the most powerful
and also the most alienated. In the torrid face of today's
world, the only way one can know about a college and its life
is to live at and with that college. Our trustees do not live
here at Curry and thus they would benefit tremendously by
meeting and working with the students whose fates they con-
trol. Reasons against these ideas are outdated, weak, or
non-existent. A college can no longer try to solve today's
problems and build tomorrow's futures with yesterday's solu-
tions. They won't work.
When students are permitted to sit on these committees,
Curry will begin to move. It will be here that students will
innovate and help solve problems that Curry finds herself in.
The student members of these committees will be able to
responsibly react to certain situations to which they now are
afforded little voice.
Students on these committees will be able to point out de-
plorable situations and call for solutions. Situations such as
incompetent employees that drain their tuition and push it
This type of situation cannot be tolerated. This school is
made up of a nucleus of students who live here as well as
learn here. It is of utmost importance that these people live in
conditions that are suitable and conducive to a college educa-
tion. The college catalogue states that Curry is a residential
institution, yet her college psychiatrist has declared our dor-
mitories to comprise the worst living conditions of any dor-
mitories in the greater Boston area.
Inefficient ancillary services such as maintenance and secu-
rity departments only serve to detract from all aspects of life
here. Both of these departments contain a select few who
competently do their jobs. These men are highly outnum-
bered by the others who are content to run around dodging
The maintenance men follow the example of their director
who many times has been publically exposed for complete
disconcern for the duties that his job entails. His department
cost the College $270,000 last year and I challenge him to le-
gitimately account for the expenditure of this money. I pro-
pose that the only thing he is maintaining is his job and
that is at tremendous cost to the students. Irresponsibility is
bad enough when it comes cheaply, but at this price it is
Our Security Force parallels maintenance remarkably.
Again, with a few exceptions, this group is made up of men
who could only be admired by the Keystone Cops. Their dis-
organization provides hilarious entertainment for those who
observe them. But $60,000 is a great deal of money to pay for
entertainment! We have Security men who would rather sweep
the road instead of do the job they are paid for. Students
cannot allow this service to be sponsored by Curry College.
We are being robbed by own own Security and have no one
who will listen to our cries for help.
Curry must utilize all of her strengths to their fullest ex-
tent. She cannot afford to carry extra employees who do not
perform their jobs adequately yet, at the same time, she can-
not afford to neglect ideas and talent that she has now. An
innovative thinker, whether he be a student, an administrator,
or a professor must not be trampled by the bureaucratic pa-
rade. It is time that we stop and recognize what we have, lis-
ten to them, and let them help, instead of spending time and
effort trying to ignore them. If we don't, we will lose them and
another hope for Curry College's new era.
It would be easy at this time to catalogue every group or
individual that I think is not performing his job sufficiently.
Some might argue that a derogatory Hit Parade serves no
purpose. However, some problems are so overwhelming that
they must be exposed. They demand the glare of publicity. I
will now illuminate some of these in the hope that by so
doing steps will be taken to correct them.
For example, how is tenure granted at Curry College? Stu-
dents are completely excluded from the selection process.
Students pay the salaries so shouldn't they have the right to
participate in the determination of which faculty members get
There are presently 10 tenured professors at Curry. Their
average age is approximately 55 and the average salary is
approximately $10,000. Assuming that they teach for another
10 years, the administration has committed one million dol-
lars to these people! The student body did not have a deter-
mination in the commitment of these resources. There was no
consultation with the students and yet it is the students, pre-
sent and future, who have to bear the twofold burden of
these decisions. We must bear the financial burden but more
importantly we must bear the quality of education that these
people are capable of imparting.
We have faculty members who openly admit that they
teach at high school levels and yet they are maintained at this
institution, which calls itself a college. How can students and
parents be expected to pay for service that does nothing but
perpetuate mediocrity? Is it any wonder that with this qual-
ity of instruction our students perform at a substantially in-
ferior level when they take objective examinations such as the
Graduate Record Exams?
Also, we have no need for faculty members who clutch
their books in one hand and their car keys in the other so
that they may escape right after their classes. A suitcase pro-
fessor benefits no one but himself.
In taking the faculty as a whole, they are not known as
educational innovators nor challengers of administrative au-
thority. They have made themselves slaves to administrative
fiat because they have not had the courage to assert the in-
herent freedoms of all faculty bodies.
Only recently they voted to continue the exculsion of stu-
dents from attending their monthly meetings. Are they so
insecure that they can't bear to face the only people to whom
they are responsible?
Curry's administration is by no means exempt from similar
careful questioning. Every administrator must assume respon-
sibility for the decisions that he has made. They must ac-
knowledge their mistakes as well as their successes. Those
Who bask in the glory of accreditation and past achievements
must not use this to conceal past failure or present shortcom-
ings. Never must this success be used as an excuse for failure
to continue the growth of this college and the accomplish-
ments of this class.
Legitimate student demands that may only be granted by
administrative agreement cannot be forestalled by administra-
tors denying the authority that is vested in them by virtue of
their offices nor can they pass the buck to the Board of Trus-
tees or other administrative officials. Gelatinous administra-
tors must not be tolerated by the student body!
Curry's new direction must come from a genuine effort to
change policy, and, if necessary, personnel. I am not calling
for a witch hunt but changes where it is notoriously obvious
that changes are demanded. Curry College has not arrived at
the top, accreditation or no accreditation. To think that she
has is only optimistic myopia from which no one benefits.
The questions that face this college are simple, the answers
difficult, but not impossible. Here redirection must be as
much philosophical as mechanical. It is not enough to correct
the problems without adjusting the ideas or philosophies that-
caused them. This school must not be run in a manner that
facilitates the efficiency of its bureaucracy. The most impor-
tant concern must be the students — not the dollar! Students
have the unique position of being the chief investors as well
as the only product. This qualifies them to share in the policy
making, both administrative as well as academic. To further
deny them this right is to modify Curry's new direction.
The chief responsibility for the continuing development of
Curry College lies with each student and alumnus. We must
seek reform and change through every possible avenue.
Student government must cease being a social club filled
with people content to mimic the policies of the college ad-
ministration or act impulsively without benefit of thought or
advice. The student body must control the student govern-
ment. Students cannot allow unfavorable conditions, adminis-
trative or academic, to go unquestioned. When student con-
cern meets illogical resistance, it must not give up. Instead it
must force itself into being not just heard, but carefully and
It is now time to set new goals and plans for attaining
them. Every facet of this college — from President to Grounds
keeper — is subject to careful scrutiny. Our new era must be
carefully defined and then each individual and department
must measure up. Anyone that does not meet the standard
must be replaced. The evaluation committee that came on our
campus last fall must never be allowed to leave. Irresponsi-
bility, no matter at what level, must be eliminated.
The new era of Curry College began with the Class of
1971. This class has stepped boldly forward where others
stood still. The bulk of the load now falls to the people who
are staying after we leave. These people — students, faculty,
administration, and staff — must become a cohesive commu-
nity with one interest — the advancement of the students.
Even as this class leaves the campus it must be realized that
they never leave this college. Every success or failure that we
experience reflects back directly to this school. What we do,
started here and will eventually end here. Curry must realize
that she cannot slight the students and expect to escape un-
marred. There are no financial, administrative, or academic
short cuts. Curry can't waste time looking for them. Only
when all concerned realize this can we go forward.
Is it unreasonable to ask people to do the jobs for which
they are paid? Is it unreasonable to expect people to take in-
terest in their jobs and in the welfare of this College? If the
answers to these questions are "Yes" then it is time to roll up
the grass and call it an era. The whole game will not have
been worth it. If the students allow these attitudes to contin-
ue, then they are more to blame than anyone.
Curry College must be forced to grow and not just expand.
Our college can now take a step forward or crumble back.
The direction is in the hands of the students. They must
demand what they want and deserve what they get.

The 1970 baseball season was one
of Curry's best years under Coach
Vallely whose squad had a record
of 16 wins and only 5 losses. The
team was very productive in runs
scored, averaging a little better
than seven a game. They look to
another winning season in 1971.

WILLIAM F. BUCKLEY, JR.
. . In Spite Of
What's it like to be editor of the yearbook? For some it is status, but actually it
means hard work. It almost requires attendance at every school function. It means
getting up in the wee hours of the morning to go to a hockey practice, and sched-
uling pictures when nobody comes. Fighting with seniors to have their pictures
taken and then spending weeks chasing after the official Senior list and their ma-
jors is part of it too.
But it's fun too. There are
conferences at which to meet
people from other schools
and exchange ideas, and you
get to meet professionals in
the photography and publish-
ing fields. It is a learning pro-
cess also. Thus I extend my
thanks to Ken Murphy and
his staff of Dodge-Murphy
studios; and to Robert Mur-
phy, our representative from
Josten's American Yearbook
I would also like to extend my
special thanks to the seniors
who took a real interest in the
book. To Bob Carapella, 1970
Editor who was valuable as my
Advising Editor; to Don Mitch-
ell, Senior Class President; to Joe
Ventrone for himself; and to
Nina Harding for her talents —
my thanks. To all the other sen-
iors and to the different secretar-
ies of the college who also
helped, again thanks.
Underclassmen also had a hand in making this book successful. At the top of
the list is my Associate Editor Bob Meers, who is in training for a stint as Editor
in his own right — of the 1972 book. This book could not have been what it is
without the advertising solicited by Steve Brown. Randy Cotton helped in keeping
track of where the money went to. Again, thanks to Steve Bleecker who took time
out from his busy schedule to do many of our better layouts.
We have tried to make this book unique. We changed type style to Palatino,
and changed the paper stock. We spent close to $2000 on color alone, not to men-
tion the duotones, direct lines, contour lines, reverse and overprinted black and
white photos. We tried a new type (to Curry) of cover and printed the directory
separate. In other words we tried to do the best we could. We hope that the image
of Curry we captured is one you feel a part of.
